Holy heat wave! As if you haven’t heard it enough, STAY HYDRATED! It’s hot, hot, hot out there and hydrating is so important to staying healthy and active in this heat. One way to add more water to your diet without constant sipping is to eat hydrating foods, (most fruits and veggies) healthy popsicles, cold soups, and more! My favorite: watermelon!
Here’s a quick recipe for a refreshing and super-hydrating drink:
Watermelon Cuke Cooler:
- 1 cup watermelon
- 1/2 cucumber (peeled)
- 1/3 cup cold water
- 5 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients and drink up!
Feel free to add more fruit, (honeydew, strawberries, or frozen banana for a bit creamier smoothie) some spices, or some honey for sweetness!
One Healthy Breakdown: get creative when it comes to hydration!
